Social Cap­i­tal as a deter­mi­nant of Post-Dis­as­ter Recov­ery. How to devel­op social cap­i­tal before an event?

Oct 12, 2018

Sev­er­al stud­ies show that social cap­i­tal build before a event is a key fac­tor of recov­ery after a dis­as­ter. To bet­ter trans­fert this knowl­edge, the City-ID Liv­ing Lab orga­nized a work­shop led by a spe­cial­ist on this sub­ject, the North­east­ern University’s polit­i­cal sci­ence pro­fes­sor Daniel Aldrich, and ani­mat­ed byt Marie-Chris­tine Ther­rien, Pro­fes­sor at ENAP and Direc­tor of Cité-ID. 

This ini­tia­tive allowed more than 30 par­tic­i­pants from nine orga­ni­za­tions to reflect on the role of social cap­i­tal and how to devel­op it. This work­shop is part of our two projects on social cap­i­tal for youth and prepa­ra­tion for cat­a­stroph­ic events. This pro­gram is finan­cial­ly sup­port­ed by Mai­son de l’innovation sociale and the Mitacs Pro­gram.
